Figure 2: Cerebral infarct/hemorrhage: A 52-year-old male underwent fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography/computed tomography imaging (maximum intensity projection; a) which shows peripherally fluorodeoxyglucose-avid space-occupying lesion in the right temporoparietal region (b-d; arrow). To ascertain the nature of lesion, 68Ga-labeled prostate-specific membrane antigen positron emission tomography/computed tomography imaging (e) was done which shows increased tracer uptake (SUVmax. 8.1) in the enhancing periphery of a ring-enhancing lesion in the right parietal cortex (f-j; arrow) suggestive of metastasis. However, a detailed clinical history of the patient and subsequent magnetic resonance imaging brain localized the tracer uptake to cerebral infarct following intracranial hemorrhage
